Heavenly Brown Sugar Cinnamon Cream Cheese Frosting

Cream cheese frosting is always a hit in my book, but spike it with brown sugar and cinnamon and it really is a taste of heaven.

      Spice cakes, apple cakes, carrot cakes and more are just begging to be covered with this luscious brown sugar and cinnamon cream cheese frosting.  It is super simple to make and perfect between graham crackers, on cakes or cookies too! Whip up a batch asap!


     Frosting is what makes the cake.  It adds the creamy layer of sweet goodness and can really tie it together.

     That is especially true when the frosting is as flavorful as this one.  It has the tang of cream cheese, the sweet warmth of brown sugar and a little cinnamon spice.

  • dip apple slices into it
